A label for well-known and less familiar Luo bands. GARI 3 is an Okoth Kodondi production for Victoria Music Stores of a band who don’t feature anywhere else in this discography. The label is distributed by AIT and details of all other recordings with GARI prefixes come from AIT’s own master catalogue.


Sofiane of Groovy Record in Paris alerted me to the existence of TIM 1 in April 2011. It is hard to tell whether this came before, after or alongside the GARI series. AIT’s own master catalogue, which is not a complete document, contains no records with this prefix. Tom Gilks very kindly provided details and a label scan of TIM 7 in May 2013. Its appearance makes me suspect the TIM series predates the GARI series, though I have no proof of this.
